  1. That’s a great find. We do so love our pets! I wonder if there was a memorial ceremony of sort, if this was made for a kid who asked to have a ‘funeral’ in the family backyard, or this was a grown man with wealth who buried his dog with pomp.

    • It was an unusual find unfortunately I was pipped at the post last night, £35, can you believe it. My wife collects memorium cards and this is the first pet card we’ve seen.

      I wonder whether they had the traditional “ham tea” afterwards? 😉

      • Wow! I believe it. Anything unusual hikes up the price. But £35? Damn
